About This Item

Best in Class!

Hand-crafted by our SHAR Beijing Workshop then set-up our SHAR Ann Arbor Workshop, the Lamberti® Sonata has raised the bar for intermediate level violins. Our Carlo Lamberti® model LV11 provides exactly what a player expects from a high quality Chinese violin from SHAR: impressive performance, a beautiful finish, and an outstanding value. Set-up in the SHAR workshop with premium fittings and strings. 4/4 to 1/8 sizes.

"This violin will allow advancing small students to make rapid progress with tone development and fast passage. Its powerful and rich tone will delight and surprise a deserving student, especially one who has grown used to the limitations of their present violin."
- Charles Avsharian, Shar CEO

"Why do I love the Lamberti violins? Because they allow my students to have a bright, clear-sounding instrument that both projects and is very sweet to the ear. Parents will enjoy hearing their child practice all afternoon on this violin and so will the student."
- Rebecca Appert, Violinist, Teacher and Shar Violin Shop Specialist

Asked On: 10/07/2017

I am interested in Carlo Lamberti Sonata Violin, and noticed that it was in the Sharway program, but when I clicked the link it didn't give me this violin as an option. I am planning on buying one outright, but wanted my daughter to try it out for a few months before I commit to it. How would I go about getting this particular violin in the Sharway program and setting that up? Thank you.

SHAR Answer:

Hi Elizabeth! Please contact us directly at 1-800-248-7427 and we would be happy to help setup your SHARWay with a Sonata Violin. Look forward to speaking with you!
